Take a canvas big as earth...paint it midnight blue
Synchronize this mass with stars
Bleached and shining through
Then sketch a moon so grand with charm
In golden shades and hues
Of illuminating phosphorous
In ochres, whites and blues
A comet shooting...tail afire
Trailing through the sky
Passed novas smiling eyes so big
As angels wave bye bye
A swing to sway imagining
With dreams to see us through
And all the pains of life are gone
With nature and her crew
You see the grand finale
As rainbow's pallet fills
With each and every raindrop
That slides down natures hills
Kaleidoscopes of crystal tint
To wash the earth with color
A brush so fine of sable hairs
To make the clouds look fuller
Pastures green with dusted dew
As tears that linger here
Among each blade of slender growth
As mirrors of her tears
For man is tender of this earth
And master of his ways
If we can't do earth better
Then soon, we'll live to pay
Through sacrificing beauty
To dullness of the grays
For now we smile through eyes that see
Never dreaming of the day
When negligence can come to call
Scorn us...demand her pay
When earth was full of true r hues
And we saw her better days.

Wow! Your poem so masterfully executed gives me chills as I see earths better days gone forever, as sad as that may seem! However, I think there is the hope that Creator will give us a new and better earth that will be everlasting!

Oh, this is powerfully penned sadness, Susan, I hope we haven't seen the last of Earth's better days ... but like Ed (below), I fear - excellent clarion call for change. Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

a wonderful poem that touches the senses in many ways--the earth in her beauty--described so well as well as human's carelessness
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 2/11/2008
Ah, I see I'm all alone here tonight . . . The thing is, Susan, your poetry sometimes is so very intense and mind-blowing that a lot of folks become intimidated and hold back their comments . . . This particular piece of literary artwork is a prim-time example . . . You paint such a kaleidoscope of Heavenly beauty as you combine it all within the human psyche that by the time the reader has finished the piece they are breathless and awed . . . You can fill in the gaps between the elements and earth and human spirit better than anyone I have ever read . . . And you can take THAT to whatever bank you feel is worthy . . .
